NLL Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz, who came to the NLL from Major League Soccer, where he most recently served as co-founding partner and CEO the ownership entity of the MLS team Philadelphia Union, has faith in Atlanta as a market, and Arlotta and his father, John, as team owners. “Atlanta is unbelievable in terms of what it has done over the last couple of decades in terms of growth. The population down there and demographics are phenomenal,” Sakiewicz told Atlanta Business Chronicle Jan. 7 before the team’s inaugural home opener at Infinite Energy Arena in Duluth, Ga.“…The ingredients are there. It’s a great venue, they’re in a great location for the sport and John Arlotta is a terrific, very committed owner. He believes in the city and the market.”
7: The Mountaineers return seven starters, including three juniors on the defensive end in Daniel Barber (28 ground balls and 10 caused turnovers) and Kevin Verkler (11 GB, 10 CT) and goalkeeper Matt Vierheller (10.50 goals-against average and .430 save percentage).

What’s Up, Philly?
Could a Committee to Free Southeast Pennsylvania have at least symbolic power? Part of the answer lies in settling the age-old question of who needs whom most: Does Philly siphon off more in state funds than it contributes? “Philadelphia itself might get more from the state than it sends in taxes, but the five-county region certainly does not,” says Marc Stier, of the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center. Region-wide secession presupposes that Philly’s neighboring counties also feel underrepresented — not a given. But if they do, our new state could, theoretically, be able to sustain itself.
In 2015, the PBPC floated the idea of tinkering with the way wealth is taxed to help plug the state’s $2 billion budget deficit. Some $1.5 billion of the gains would have come from the five-county region. All of which is to say, given the power to tax more progressively, Philly and its surrounding counties could be just fine without the state that doesn’t seem to want them much.
Amateur photographer Karim Bouchetata took incredible pictures of snow covering the sand in the small Saharan desert town of Ain Sefra, Algeria, yesterday afternoon. He captured the amazing moment snow fell on the red sand dunes in the world's largest hot desert for the first time in 37 years.
Snow was last seen in Ain Sefra on February 18, 1979, when the snow storm lasted just half an hour.
